HR Carnival: Local Support for Haiti

January 26, 2010

Michael VanDervort from the Human Race Horses  blog,  is doing another special HR Carnival.  This time it’s to showcase local support for Haiti.

A group called Edge Outreach,an international faith-based group, with headquarters in Louisville,  is busy providing water for the children and families effected by this crisis.   The Edge Outreach water team recently installed three water systems in the area – one at a Salvation Army site filled with homeless survivors, another serving a clinic that is seeing more than 200 injured or sick patients daily and a third at a Haitian Community Hospital. 

Other local entities have also aided in this relief effort.  The Louisville Water Company, the Metropolitan Sewer District and our city government donated a total of $25000.  And members of one local church, Southeast Christian, have donated over $80000. 

Edge is providing a wonderful service.  Donations are still being accepted and every little bit counts and goes a long way to helping Edge provide clean water to the survivors.

If you’re interested in donating, you can do so directly on their site.
